A CHOIR has raised more than £3,000 for the JPK Project.

The Concentus Chorale held their annual end of season barbecue at Bates Farm, Arlington.

The choir support the JPK Project with retiring collections at the concerts and the proceeds from their raffle at their sing-a-long evening.

At the barbecue they presented Jill Parker and her daughter Katie with their cheque for £3,310.59 – the proceeds from their year of fundraising.

Adrian White, director of music for the choir, said, “Concentus Chorale has long recognised the worthwhile objectives and long term benefits of The JPK Project.

“The enthusiasm, drive and beliefs of the choir is as strong now as it was from the start and we will continue to support the JPK in the realisation of the need to provide a supported living centre in the area for people with a learning disability, where those resident will receive continual support within a caring environment and be helped to live as independently as possible and be able to live a meaningful and useful life.”

Jill thanked the Concentus Chorale for their continued support and added, “It has not only made a difference financially but has given the JPK Project the encouragement and strength to battle on with its endeavours.”
